Gallery One marks Cleveland’s 2016 RNC with “The Grand Old PARTy Exhibit”
MENTOR, OH – More than 50,000 visitors are expected for Cleveland’s 2016 Republican National Convention. Gallery One in Mentor, OH is celebrating this historic event with its Grand Old PARTy Exhibit, featuring patriotic and historic favorites from the GOP. This free exhibit is open to the public and all are invited beginning Saturday, July 16. It closes Saturday, September 3.
“Our fabulous new exhibit features more artwork than you can shake a convention gavel at,” said Alan Brown, Gallery One president. “We have amassed a collection with broad appeal that transcends political affiliations. It includes unique artwork signed by America’s first astronauts, portraits of presidents and founding fathers by artists Dean Morrissey, John Trumbull and Andy Thomas, artwork celebrating the immigrant experience by Jim Daly, famous American monuments by Rod Chase and John Payne, aviation art by William S. Phillips, Western art by Howard Terpning and Martin Grelle, not to mention classic depictions of those proud symbols, bald eagles and elephants. In addition, we have a large selection of local landmarks by Cleveland’s iconic photographer Jim Ptacek.”
All of the artwork is available for purchase and can be shipped for the collector’s convenience. Republican party delegates, visitors, media and residents alike can also take home the 2016 RNC commemorative keepsake featuring the official Republican mascot as a hand-signed giclée on canvas print available in three sizes. Entitled The Grand Old Party Animal, it depicts a stately elephant by award-winning photographer Alan Brown. The elephant was first used to symbolize the Republican Party in 1874.
